Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) released the following statement after questioning Attorney General Loretta Lynch when she appeared before the House Committee on the Judiciary today:

"Attorney General Lynch delivered a dismal performance before the House Judiciary Committee. Her refusal to answer any questions regarding the classified information case against Hillary Clinton demonstrated contempt for Congress and the American people. 

Even though serious questions remain about the appearance of impropriety in the case -- from Lynch's private meeting with Bill Clinton to President Obama's endorsement of Secretary Clinton -- Lynch retrenched to a 'hear no evil, see no evil' posture that provided zero insight into her decision to accept the FBI's recommendation.  Indeed, she would not even discuss her Department's analysis of the statutes that govern classified information."
